I am primarily a watercolor artist who has lived in Oregon since 1995, where I maintain a studio and teach youth painting classes at the Walters Cultural Arts Center in downtown Hillsboro. I paint because I love using color and shape to tell stories. With a background in art history, I am especially interested in the events and circumstances that lead artists to create.  I am a member of Watercolor Society of Oregon and Oregon Society of Artists.  I show my work regularly at Village Gallery of Arts in Portland, Oregon.
